After this week, it will be a defining moment for OnePlus once more. The company is expected to launch its newest smartphone, the OnePlus 5. Meanwhile, while everyone is waiting with bated breath for the official launch, a new GeekBench benchmark was done on the phone. Furthermore, the scores revealed pretty impressive performance making it worthy to be called the “flagship killer.”
According to the GeekBench test, the OnePlus 5 raked in a single core score of 1917. The upcoming OnePlus phone managed to edge out the Xiaomi MI 6 by only a few points. Compared to a Samsung Galaxy S8 this score is at least six percent better.
On the other hand, the multicore score showed that the OnePlus 5 is really a force to be reckoned with. It garnered a score of 6562 on multicore processing making it almost 20 percent faster than the Galaxy S8.
Another interesting bit about the benchmark is the main memory size of the phone. Since its announcement, many market watchers have predicted that the OnePlus 5 will feature a total of 8GB of RAM.
This will be the first time a smartphone will have this much system RAM. Normally, most Android devices are equipped with 4GB of system RAM. However, there are some high-end devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8 with 6GB of RAM.
At the moment, the need for that much RAM is still under debate. Most smartphone manufacturers, Huawei included, do not believe that there is a need for phones with 8GB RAM. Nevertheless, it seems like the market is still calling for it whether it is needed or not.
The OnePlus 5 will be officially launch on the 20th of June. OnePlus has already announced the said launch even through its Twitter page. Apart from the similarity in design with the iPhone 7, the OnePlus 5 is also expected to have the Snapdragon 835 chip from Qualcomm.
